Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Convert your favorite Genesis 3 Female characters to new Genesis 8 Female characters! The Character Converter from Genesis 3 Female to Genesis 8 Female transfer the morphs from beloved Genesis 3 characters to the latest generation, Genesis 8. The Character Converter scripts provide easy batch execution for automatically converting your Genesis 3 Female Character to a Genesis 8 Female Character in your library. Even better, icons, categories, and the default materials are copied from your original Genesis 3 Female to the new Genesis 8 Female.

The Character Converter scripts outputs are also a merchant resource! If you own the original Genesis 3 morphs, you retain the rights to the converted Genesis 8 morphs to do as you wish. The new Character Converter script is extremely simple to use. Just select the characters to convert and click execute! There is also a Convert Scene Character script which will copy a Genesis 3 Female character in the scene, with all currently used morphs, to a Genesis 8 Female character (no character preset is created and no materials are copied).

Additional Details

  • The Character Converter script cannot properly convert all Genesis 3 Male characters. Characters with extreme morphs may have problems, especially around the eyes. Multi-part characters (e.g., a character that loads a figure and separate horns) cannot be converted. Material presets are also not converted. Default materials copied to your new Genesis 8 characters may have ugly seams and/or misaligned features due to the different UV layout. Items without metadata can be converted but will not show up in Smart Content. They may also need to be converted using a Force Convert Item(s) button.
  • Since this product uses encrypted scripts, it cannot be used in versions of Daz Studio below 4.9.3.166.
